The color is lovely, the fit was true to size, but I just couldn't get over the feeling that it was a top for a younger gal ( and I am young-looking for my demographic!). Showed it to my daughter who promptly tried it on and fell in love with it! It looked amazing on her, so it's hers. Now she loves Boston Proper clothes too!
Loose everywhere besides the upper arms and bust, but it works. I like it for lounging around the house. If I were to go out, I'd have to wear a peek thru cami because it def. shows off your chest. Nice material, very nice color in red.

I was completely won over with this top! Everything about it fits great. The sleeve length, the top length and overall cut is perfect. I am 5'7" and a 40D and had no problems filling the top out. As a brand new customer this was a definite reason for me to continue to be a customer.
I'm a size 6/36C and normally take a small in BP clothes. Based on the reviews, I ordered down a size, and the extra-small fit perfectly. Beautiful soft red color and good-quality fabric. The puffy sleeves certainly didn't bother me; in fact, I liked them and that's why I ordered it! A bit lowcut, so if you're wearing this to the office, you may want to wear a cami or cami bra underneath. One of my favorite recent BP purchases, and I may order a black one, too!
I'm sorry ladies. I had high hopes for this cute top. It was red, had a nice bustline and looked really nice in the pic BUT it felt like I was in a bad pirate movie. The sleeves are just too billowy and the fit seemed a little large. I am 130 lbs 5' 7" and a 36D. I LOVE Boston Proper clothes and have never had a negative reaction until now. Very disappointed. But the fact is...I am too lazy to return this so I'm wearing it tonite. I pulled the sleeves up to my elbows...yeah, it looks a little weird but it looks much better than at the wrists. My guy will probably like the scoop neckline and THAT part IS flattering but I do not advise buying this. IF you do I would go down one size. This is the first time I would advise that as I ALWAYS fit in a small. Aargh Matey! X marks the spot! xoxo Adele
This top is nice for the price. It is soft and very well made. Like the previous reviewer stated, the back is gathered like the front, which is actually very nice. It hides any of those back imperfections (bulges, bra lines). It does run big. I'm between a size 8 and 10 but alway order a medium. I decided not to return it for a smaller sizer . It looks cute with a lacy cami underneath.
This is a really well made top, great price. One thing you cannot see is the back of the garment, it has a small gathering, not smocking that is very figure flattering. I am normally a size medium BP in between a 10 and 12, so I ordered medium, it is cut large so I had to return for a small, I did express return and it arrived Saturday, the wait for size change was worth it, very pretty, I got the cherry color, perfect for fall and I love the baloon sleevs a winner from BP and very budget friendly!

I found this top ugly, a bright, unattractive cherry, not soft as in photo and much to big and to long. I wear xs and I felt like I was being swallowed up. Fit me exactly like a maternity top and I felt pregnant. Did not like the stitching in the front either, basically this top looks cheap overall. The only thing positive is it fit well in the bust area and the material was soft, otherwise, no thanks!!
